Hi all, I am updating anyone following my story. I had a clear ultrasound and bloods ok except MCV96L and phosphate low. I have still been feeling very unwell. Have had other issues like itchiness, sudden increase in facial veins and diagnosed early menopause. Also right rib pain. Ultrasound did show a 17ml gall stone.
I pushed for a fibroscan as G.P was not worried. My result was 7.9kpa. My question is. Could this level of fibrosis be causing my symptoms. How accurate is it for this range of fibrosis? I have not had a drink for 5 weeks and never plan drinking again. I’d like to work on my diet but have been too nauseous to eat much and have lost 8 kg in the last 5 weeks.
I’m seeing the G.P tonight. He won’t have the results yet but I need something to stop this nausea. What happens next? Should I ask for a referral to gastro? I’m anxious by nature.
